Parents & Carers

Getting Parents Involved

At The Link Academy we're greedy for parents to be involved in our school life. We recognise the importance of working in partnership with parents and carers to ensure the success and happiness of our children and young people.

Research states that parents who are actively involved in the process of their child's education achieve more in school. Parental involvement continues to have a significant effect on achievement into adolescence and adulthood.

How you can be involved:

  • Attend progress evenings
  • Attend information sessions (how to support your child workshops)
  • Take part in family learning sessions
  • Do a course to improve your own learning
  • Join our Parents' Group/PTA
  • Become a Parent Governor
  • Join our Additional Needs Parent Support Group
  • Take part in a Positive Parenting Course to improve the parent-child relationship and behaviour

What we offer throughout the school year:

  • Year 7 Parent/carer drop-in event
  • Family Learning sessions
  • Adult Learning classes and activities
  • Support for parents through coffee mornings/parent workshops/drop-in events
  • Information is available from school reception and school newsletters
  • Opportunities to meet other parents/carers
